We cordially invite you to submit an abstract to the following session at
the 2016 Fall AGU meeting on December 12-16 in San Francisco, California.
NH002: Challenges and opportunities associated with the use of novel data
streams during natural hazards and emergencies.
*Submission link: *
*Abstract Deadline:* 3 August 2016
In recent years, advances in science have enabled new capabilities to
acquire near-real time Earth data from space-borne, air-borne and ground
based measurements. Easy access to novel information streams, including
social media, is redefining situation awareness. These streams are diverse,
complex and overwhelming in volume, velocity and in the variety of
viewpoints they offer. These multi-sourced data can support assessment,
humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations in ways not
Negotiating these overwhelming streams is beyond the capacity of human
analysts. Novel research and approaches are necessary to explore new
capabilities and challenges to utilize these streams in new, groundbreaking
ways, and to leverage, fuse and filter these new data. This session is
organized to explore the opportunities, challenges, solutions and
applications of leveraging and synthesizing the multi-sourced data,
computing technologies and tools to support the analysis, and to assist in
response during various disaster phases (mitigation, preparedness,
response, and recovery).
